    Feel like a toddler that learned to run

    The pop up was always my weakest link in surfing. This coaching helped me more than any live instructor. I’m way faster to my feet and cruising down the line. Thanks surf strength coach!

    I'm so grateful

    I’m so grateful that it has made such a huge difference.
    I’m showing all of my novice mates and have used my own progress as an example in a mental health and well-being program I run. Happy to stay in touch because I really like your teaching style and your systems work for me (I’m a school principal).

    A lot of AHA moments!

    It’s very easy to find a lot of AHA moments since I’ve started the program 2 months ago.

    I’m a middle-aged overweight man (49) that just started to try to surf 1 year ago. The first step was to learn to popup. Prior to the program, my popup was very ugly involving my knee and a lot of contortions. Now I’m not sure it is pretty, but at least it is quick and effortless. I can report after a week in Salvador that I can finally popup efficiently and quick enough to actually surf a green wave. Now I need to learn to balance and turn 🙂

    Also, the exercise helps a lot to gain the strength and flexibility necessary. I’ve seen a great improvement since I started.

    I'm Stronger and Healthier!

    I really think that the perfect pop up is helping me
    not only with my pop up, with my strength and flexibility, with my mind too. I´m more happy taking more waves,
    being more healthy and stronger.

Failed Pop Ups are incredibly frustrating, and ultimately limit your surfing. You don't have to fail and fumble with your takeoffs anymore. Think of how radically this could change your surfing.
